to medicare and medicaid, read vouchers. and also want to eliminate the sequester cuts to defense spending that are automatically supposed to take place. and the good news is that speak are boehner might have less of a problem from the ugly wing of his party at least than what he got before. because yesterday grover nordquist sounded a little more reasonable than say before the republicans got shellacked in the election. he said that republicans can raise revenues as long as they can go home and pass the laugh test. in other words, as long as they go go home and tell their con switch went that they didn't actually raise tax rates without getting laughed at. >> so it's gotta pass the laugh test. not just the moment it happens but between now and the next several elections. >> jennifer: so maybe he's not so ugly after all. i don't know, what am i thinking? at the end of the day the press has shown his hand. so mr. speaker your much. joining me now is nancy cook budget and tax correspondent for the national journal

that on every issue you needed a supermajority. in 1965, medicare passed. most people like medicare. had 55 votes. if it came before the senate before, it would fail. >> eliot: i gotta -- >> one very quick thing the healthcare legislation was watered down time and again by the use of the filibuster and they kept making it weaker and weaker and weaker because they needed 60 votes to even consider it. >> eliot: not that it matters but if i were a judge, i would say the fact of the constitution specifies where you do need a supermajority implicitly says you don't therefore fill buster is not constitutional. i did not know that about aaron burr. he both gave us the filibuster and dueling as a way to resolve disputes. the guy has extensive process clearly not what ours is. bob edgar ceo of common cause. michael waldman president of brennan center for justice. thank you for joining us tonight. another teenager senselessly gunned down in florida raising questions again about the scope of the stand your ground law. >> eliot: a det

: they are in a box. if they put a specific proposal on the table for either medicare cuts or specific loopholes they want to close whatever, it means that they're bound to those things. that's why nobody wants to put anything in writing. today speaker boehner appointed candace mill for chair the house administration committee. now all week, we've heard all the theirs were men. do you think this is intended and will quiet down the critics that the republicans weren't living? >> no. i mean, it's a nice gesture. it's wonderful to see another woman in a leadership position in congress, but the republican--enough cannot be said about the fact that they need more women. they need more people of color and you should not have to be called out in the media for lack of female reputation amongst yourself. you should be able to do that on your own. >> jennifer: exhibit b of them not listening to the people. exhibit a. when they're not cutting a deal with the president when they have a mandate. your best whether they go over the cliff or not at the end of the year, are they going to go? >> it is so close bu

. if it's medicare and medicaid, we need to bring it to washington. >> global warming. >> exactly. anything that comes to the president's desk i think in the next four years, he's going to sign it if it's a progressive policy. we can't just depend upon him to do it. now, it's our job to push it through the congress. and i think that's our number 1 prior to for the next 4 years. >> absolutely. and to keep that grass wraiths activism, you know, aliveroots activism, you know, alive and use it to support the agenda 866-55-press. in fact, remember, we talked about this yesterday, the president, let's get into this when we come back. the president is asking for a big grassroots effort right now to tell congress what that extra $2,000 means to you $2,000 you would have to pay in taxes if they don't approve this continued tax cut for the middle class. it's hashtag my2k. we will be right back on today's "full-court press." >> on your radio and on current tv this is "the bill press show."
